Application Of Ultra-high Molecular Weight Polyethylene

Jun 21, 2019

Due to its many excellent properties, ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene has shown great advantages in the high-performance fiber market, from mooring ropes in offshore oil fields to high-performance lightweight composite materials, and plays an important role in modern warfare and aerospace, aerospace, marine defense equipment and other fields.


1. Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene can be built to install coal, lime, cement, mineral powder, salt, grain and other powdered documents of the trailer, silo, chute lining, because it exists excellent self-lubricity, non-stick, so that the above-mentioned powdered documents for storage and transportation facilities do not adhesthetic scene, to ensure a solid sponsor. 2. Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene used to flow sand and other liquid sponsor pipe, compared with other pipes outstanding performance performance: compared with bamboo pipe life increased 18 times, interest reduced to 1/25, compared with nylon pipe life increased 3 times, interest reduced to 1/8.


At the time of recommendation, the in-tube barrier is 25% smaller than the non-metallic tube, which greatly improves the frequency of the recommendation. 3. In the range of chutes, buckets and ore chamber linings, when using traditional non-metallic documents, when encountering cold and wet weather, the items will be thawed on non-metallic, while the adoption of polymer polyethylene sheet will never, thus greatly reducing the unloading cost.


After a layer of high molecular polyethylene sheet is lined with a layer of polymer polyethylene sheet on the dump drain of the bulk carrier, the homogenization of the unloading worker is reduced from the original 16 to 20h to 8h.


4. In terms of equipment for the Defence Force, because of its good impact resistance and larger than energy absorption, it can be made in military protective clothing, helmets, bulletproof materials, such as helicopters, tanks and ships of armored shields, radar shields, missile hoods, body armor, anti-piercing clothing, shields, parachutes, etc. 5. In aerospace engineering, due to its light height and good impact resistance, it is suitable for various aircraft wing tip structure, spacecraft structure and buoy aircraft.


It can also be used as a slow-moving parachute for the shuttle landing and a rope for hanging heavy objects on board, replacing traditional cables and synthetic fiber ropes, which develop at an unusually rapid rate. 6. In the civil field, ropes, cables, sails and fishing gear made are suitable for marine engineering, and the length of the break under self-weight is 8 times that of the steel rope and 2 times that of aramid.


The rope is used for supertankers, marine operating platforms, lighthouses, etc. fixed anchor ropes, to solve the past use of steel cable sleaze and nylon, polyester cable corrosion, hydrolysis, ULTRAviolet degradation and other causes of cable strength reduction and fracture, need to be replaced frequently. 7. In industrial applications, it can be used as a pressure-resistant container, conveyor belt, filter material, automotive cushioning plate, etc., and the construction can be used as a wall, partition structure, etc., and using it to enhance cement composite materials can improve the toughness of cement and improve its impact resistance.


Because of its excellent wear resistance, impact resistance, it is widely used in the machinery manufacturing industry, can be made a variety of gears, cams, impellers, rollers, sheaves, bearings, shaft swares, shafts, cutting shafts, gaskets, gaskets, elastic couplings, screws and other mechanical components.


8. In the sporting goods has been made into a hard hat, skis, sail wheel, fishing rod, racket and bicycle, gliding board, ultra-lightweight aircraft parts, etc. , its performance is better than traditional materials. 9. In medicine, for dental materials, medical grafts and plastic sutures and other fields, its biocompatibility and durability are good, and have a high stability, will not cause allergies, has been used in clinical applications. It is also used in medical gloves and other medical measures.
